Lyme Bay boat trip.

Departed Brixham this morning for our Lyme Bay boat trip out of Brixham. The best this morning was a Sooty Shearwater, the bird came in very close to the vessel and sat on the water. Pictures taken by people on the boat and I hope they will post them for you to see. Non taken by me forgot to pick up camera battery when leaving home this morning!!!!!

Other birds seen range from many Guillemot, 2 Razorbill, 50 + Manx Shearwater, 20 Kittiwake, 5 Common Scoter, Lesser black-backed Gull, Great black-backed Gull, Fulmar, Gannet, and a Petrel sp in far distance. 5 Porpoise. so not a bad trip.  Not the best for me!! a spare battery would be good.
